Norton Help: Stay Protected in the Public Wi-Fi Network

by Olivia James Mycustomerservice

Nowadays public Wi-Fi is found in popular public places, such as airports, coffee shops, malls, restaurants, and hotels. It allows you to access the free internet. These hotspots are so widespread and common that people frequently don’t think twice while connecting with them. Normally, it sounds harmless to log on and check your social media account or browse some news articles but it could be equally risky also. Here, in this article, we will discuss the risks and methods for staying safe with the public Wi-Fi. In case, if you have any query, then contact Norton Customer Service.

What are the risks involved in public Wi-Fi?

The problem with the public Wi-Fi is that there are numerous risks that go along with these networks such as: -

·         Man-in-the-Middle attacks

·         Unencrypted networks

·         Malware distribution

·         Snooping and sniffing

·         Malicious hotspots

How to stay protected in the public Wi-Fi?

The best way to stay safe while using public Wi-Fi is to use a VPN (Virtual Private Network), when surfing on your PC, Mac, Smartphone or tablet. However, if you use public Wi-Fi, then follow these tips to protect your information.

·         Don’t allow your Wi-Fi to auto-connect to the public networks

·         Try not to log into any account via an app that contains sensitive information. Instead, go to the website and verify it.

·         Never leave your Wi-Fi or Bluetooth on if you are not using them.

·         Avoid accessing the websites that hold your sensitive information, such as such as financial or healthcare accounts.

·         Don’t log onto a network which is not password protected.

·         Disable the file sharing.

·         Always visit the sites using HTTPS.

·         Don’t forget to log out of the accounts after using them.

So, these are the simple methods which you need to follow in order to prevent your data from being stolen or from being attacked. If you have issue, query or need any assistance, then dial Norton Helpline Number.
